Sunday Evening Dog Blogging: Reader Dogs

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

Here’s Sandy, sent by her owner Les Milton, who writes:

We got Sandy last December from a rescue organization and it’s been amazing to see how she’s affected my 12-year-old son.  Besides the responsibilities of feeding and walking, he’s just been so affectionate with her.  It’s like she discovered a hidden reserve of love inside him. My wife, who always thought of dogs as nice, but kind of gross, thinks of her as the daughter she never had and sleeps with her every night (and she doesn’t think dogs are gross at all anymore).

She’s not a big dog, but she’s all dog.

Beautiful dog. Keep them coming!

    What a darling pup!

    I’m a complete sucker for dogs.

    My dog is a ferocious biter of ankles which would matter I guess if he had any teeth. He’s an eight pound Maltese mix. He was stolen from a woman who was killing him with neglect and dropped off anonymously at a shelter. I took him in as a foster dog with no expectation that he would actually survive. He looked like roadkill.

    He has doubled in wieght and produced a great deal of cottony hair, so much hair that I have to brush him and trim him daily. No matter how much I groom him he still looks like the “before” picture in a puppymill rescue. But he’s a happy active affectionate little guy and I love him to pieces. I used to find little yappy dogs annoying and never expected to have one of my own.

    I’m not a “dog person”, but what an adorable little pupper!

    There is something special about boys and their dogs. They seem to learn how to love from them. :-)

    They’re still a little bit gross, come on. I bet he’d eat cat shit, given the opportunity.

    Zeb, it depends on the quality and freshness of the cat shit. Also the pedigree of the cat in question. Usually, Sandy prefers the goose shit she finds in the park. She chews it like gum.

    Absolutely Adorable puppy is absolutely adorable. I know I say the same thing each time Radley posts puppy pics, but your affinity for dogs is one of the many things that makes the Agitator such an awesome blog.
